Today: Jogging from Playa Del Rey to Marina Del Rey. Total: a little over 3.5 miles.
also brought the jumprope and did some interval sets every 10 min. Did 5 pull-ups on the bars on Via Marina.
Rain yesterday kept me inside so I did as many sit-ups as I could do in the living room. Abs were on fire! haha
While its been nearly two months since my Crossfit journey began, I have yet to fully take advantage of journaling on the fitness forums. So in my attempt to follow through with said goals, I’m back and Im going to try my best to keep putting entries in as needed.
During the past several weeks, I’ve been learning so much. Its so nice to be surrounded by such supportive athletes from all backgrounds. While most of the time I feel like I’m the weakest, slowest, least-coordinated, etc etc, I have had small moments where I’ve overcome personal barriers. I never would have pushed myself this hard on my own. Im looking forward to the continued challenges, and I know if I follow through Ill reach my goals.
I have been doing well with my diet too - my cart at Trader Joe’s has been filled with lettuces, tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, carrot, peppers, onions, apples, grapefruit, bananas, turkey jerky, chicken breast, salmon, almonds and lots of random items within the paleo diet. I’ve still be dealing with the sugar cravings, but holding out is the best thing for me. I’ve been allowing myself one cheat meal a week. Changing my diet this drastically gives me a small insight into what it must be like to quit cigarettes. Im so thankful I never was a smoker, but I know now that being a fast food fanatic sure comes in as a quick second in the category of malignant habits. Never again I say!
Im happy to report I’ve dropped a nice 8 pounds since joining. Still have about 35 left to reach my goal weight which Im aiming for spring or summer of next year. Man its going to be great to get that new pair of jeans! (and size them up with the ones I had 4 years ago when I was 300lbs+!!!) I think a Jared commercial impression will be called for at that time
